On March 12th, 25 members of National Honor Society volunteered at Sleep in Heavenly Peace in Kenosha, an organization that builds beds for those in need. In addition to building 24 beds, National Honor Society also made a $1200.00 donation to the organization.
Carolyn May, the officer who organized the event and 2022-2023 NHS President, said of the event, "The Sleep in Heavenly Peace Project was an eye-opening opportunity for many of the National Honor Society students. Having a bed to sleep in is something many people take for granted and I truly believe this opportunity to build beds for those in need, especially right in our community, helped put that into perspective."
Beyond supporting Sleep in Heavenly Peace, our National Honor Society members are on track to complete more than 3700 hours of community service, have donated $3000 to local families in need, and are currently working on a Spring food drive to help support those in our community who are facing food insecurity.
Mr. Del Ponte, NHS Advisor, commented, "I could not be more proud of the work our NHS members have done this year. This group of students has effectively used their diverse talents to serve our local community. From running a tutor lab at UGES, to building beds, to collecting socks for Veterans, to countless other projects, big and small, these kids have truly done it all!"
